-election. john boehner has basically said in the house, you know, we're going to sit back and watch and see what comes out of the senate. so it is a very, you know, bad use of a word, but sort of a targeted issue here. you know, i just am not entirely sure that mayor bloomberg's money is going to have the kind of impact in those areas it would have to have. >> i want to bring in congressman charles rangel. always good to have you on the program. good morning. >> good to be back. good morning. >> you're a proponent of many of these new laws. what happened to people in your corner? i mean, things seemed so promising after newtown and now the senate democrats, harry reid said, look, it's just a pragmatic decision, can barely get 40 votes for an assault weapons ban, let alone 60. what happened? >> i'm ashamed to admit it, but it's politics and it's money. the national rifle association has taken this position. there's no reason, there's no foundation, there's no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of going hunting. but, you know, it's really basically the absen

. talk to your doctor about toviaz. >>> a good start, that's how secretary of state john kerry described president obama's first presidential visit to israel. the white house had set expectations low, but is there was one surprise, when the president persuaded israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to apologize to turkey over mistakes that led to the death of activists on a flotilla bound for gaza. let me bring in congressman elliott angle. good to see you. >> thank you. >> congressman mike rogers had a very different take than john kerry about the president's trip. let me play it for you. >> i thought the trip was a disappointment for us. i think the president squandered great opportunity to show leadership and push them in a place where they could get an agreement out of a meeting, didn't get it, got a speech, get to some agreement on the path forward on syria, didn't get that. >> so from your perspective, congressman, a disappointment, a success? somewhere in between? >> it was a great success. i was with the president. i flew with him on air force one, traveled with him.

scandal, bill clinton has never been more popular. on the other side, john edwards and larry craig, of course, of the infamous bathroom footsies. what do you think separates someone who can come back from someone who doesn't? >> i think if you look at a lot of people who have come back. bill clinton being perhaps the best example. someone who was able to sort of get back to focusing on substance and allow that sort of salacious conversation to become a side conversation. for someone like mark sanford, in order to have a big rebound, he's going to have to focus on things like his record as governor, things that make him popular from a policy perspective so that the conversation isn't just one about personality. >> is it mostly about that, do you think, chris? or is the key you've got to apologize and look somewhat sincere? you've got to get punished and seem to suffer. more than just, say, get your name recognition up by being mocked by leno and letterman. >> you can never underestimate the ability of the american people to forgive someone. that is a truism of politics. that being said,

campaign i worked for john kerry and dick gephardt two great progressives and being for civil unions in that campaign was considered the leading edge. >> it was a big deal then. >> big deal. in 2016 every democrat running for president will be for marriage equality. you know, frankly, i think the republicans as we saw with rob portman last week and the report they put out yesterday are starting to come our way, too. it's only a matter of time. >> that was my question. do you think that, well, if any democrat or for that matter any republican can get through 2016 that the obvious pickle is for republicans who are trying to get through the primaries? >> i think it'll be tough for a republican but if i look at "the washington post"/abc poll yesterday, 81% of people under the age of 30 -- 81% are for marriage equality. if they're not going to be for it in 2016 they're going to be for it in 2020 or 2024. >> vice president biden, maryland's governor, martin o'malley, of course new york's governor andrew cuomo, all of them for same sex marriage. do you think we'll see a sort of a windfall or a

. >>> while some lawmakers say they're willing to compromise, house speaker john boehner doesn't seem ready for a grand bargain. adam shift joins me in about five minutes to talk about that. >>> the island of cypress is making international waves. jackie is here. jackie, small island but big waves here? >> that's absolutely right. hi, richard. for one, europe had fallen off the radar for a long time and that's why this is getting so many attention. a lot of the reason that the dow had made this record run is because investors were hoping that europe's debt crisis was resolved. with respect to cyprus specifically, e.u. has proposed a deal as part of the country's bailout. this marks the first time a european country is calling on its depositors to keep it afloat. it's also sparking concerns about a run on the banks in europe. because if depositors in other countries start to panic about a possible tax, they try to withdraw their funds you could see big problems for european banks. >> maybe this might help in a small way. talk about a billion-dollar business and that's college ball. >>

. and what happened to them. and those six teachers and administrators. >> these are john lien on's blood eyeglasses from the day he was murdered. good to see both of you, good morning. let me read to you from the column in the washington post this morning. we all know what's happening here. senate democrats face a tough battle to hold on to their slim majority. i'd love to hear them explain their cal kragss to the parents of newtown. emily, is harry reid's bill essentially a surrender that's based on the political reality of the vote next year? >> i would actually even challenge even at this point harry reid's cal slags that this is a political reality. the reality is the american public is already there. particularly, when it comes to background checks. poll after poll is showing us 90% of the american people, 84% of gun owners, even 74% of nra members are supporting the universal background checks. the nra -- >> that is in the bill. what's not in the bill is assault weapons. as you know dianne feinstein wasn't very happy about it. >> not very happy and neither was vice president
